The Craziness That Is My Life

The craziest thing happened the other day. I had to call the nursing home & voice a concern that I had about Daron. That led to a UA test being done to see if he has a UTI. It wasn't done as soon as I thought it would be, but it was done none the less. Daron thought I was crazy for asking them to do a UA on him because he thought he was fine. They told him the results on Tuesday & he called to let me know - they came back normal....at least that's what he said they told him. I got a phone call on Wednesday letting me know that since Daron had just given permission for them to call me with any changes. The nurse let me know that the UA results actually came back positive for a UTI & they were starting him on an antibiotic.

So, when will people ever listen to me & trust that I know things about Daron?? The last time he was acting funny - like on Friday - he had a UTI & it went septic so it ended up in the hospital on IV antibiotics. So when I talked to him & realized that he was doing the same things, I was worried & voiced my concern to the nursing home. Daron still thinks I was overreacting & he's fine.Thankfully they caught it - 5 days later - & started him on the antibiotics. Now I am praying that the antibiotics will take effect before he goes septic again.

That is the craziness that is my life these days. Trying to talk the nursing home staff into taking my concerns for what they are & actually listening. One of these days.....
